The unsuspecting person is always funnier than the actor.
22 June 2001 | by (Auburn, Me) – See all my reviews

Why was Candid Camera such a great show? Because when it comes down to laughing at people it's not watching a performance in a stage play or a movie or a TV show it's watching them in the act of being themselves. The show is still on and still great to watch but the originals with the Candid Cameraman himself Allen Funt are still the best.
